This presentation will cover what decisions need to be made and how we chose to implement them for two very different numismatic publications. The first publication included all numismatic collectibles for Chattanooga Tennessee. Tom and I had extensive collections of this material. However, we needed to research and extend our knowledge beyond what we collected to cover all material in our scope. We decided to publish the information in a CD Adobe Acrobat (pdf format).
The second publication included all obsolete paper money from the state of Tennessee. We had some knowledge of Tennessee scrip. There was very little published information on Tennessee scrip. Therefore, we spent over 12 years researching scrip images and information. We agreed to publish a book using Adobe InDesign.
We created a website for both publications during the period when we were researching that was open to dealers and collectors to follow as we found new images and information. All information and images were credited on the website. The website was closed when we began selling the publications.
